Scholastic to Print Over 3 Million Copies of Beedle the Bard

Publishers Weekly writes that Scholastic, the U.S. publishers of the Harry Potter books, have ordered an initial print run of 3.5 million copies of J.K. Rowling's, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, which will go one sale December 4th with proceeds benefitting the Children's High Level Group. An advertising campaign will for the book's release will be featured online and in the New York Times Book Review and USA Today in late November and early December.

Ingram Book Group's director of merchandising Mary McCarthy says the logistics will be “challenging.” The company meets weekly to review orders and transportation to ensure that everything will go smoothly. Although she doesn't expect Beedle to sell at the same levels as Deathly Hallows—Ingram's initial order was roughly one-third of its initial buy for Deathly Hallows—it is still a major title.

“Everyone knows someone who loves Harry Potter. It's a great stocking stuffer and a wonderful addition to a Harry Potter library,” says Diane Mangan, director of children's merchandising at Borders Book Group. Already Beedle is getting strong preorders at both Borders and Borders.com. And Mangan is hoping to keep up the momentum by highlighting the book on Borders's homepage and giving it front-of-store treatment in its stores on publication.



You can pre-order The Tales of Beedle the Bard using the following links.

Beedle the Bard NYC Unveiling; Arthur Levine Interview

To mark the release of J.K. Rowling's The Tales of Beedle the Bard tomorrow, December 4th, Scholastic's Harry Potter editor Arthur Levine today placed his original Beedle the Bard book to be on display for one month, beginning tomorrow and ending on January 4th, at the New York Public Library's Humanities and Social Sciences Library located at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street.

TheDailySnitcher was at the unveiling and we have the following quotes from Arthur Levine! Photos can be seen here!

About his favorite tale from the book, The Fountain of Fair Fortune:

"It has that quality of being - feeling like it's existed forever" and has "strong, interesting female characters" and that it "still feels original and surprising; it's hard to be a folktale and be original."

Also, J.K. Rowling did give him a tip to let him know that the book would be coming, which is marked 5/7.

She called to tell me that i should be on the lookout for this. It was a little bit of a surprise how it came; but she warned me in advance ... so that it wouldn't be someone else's surprise.

My feelings about Beedle are very personal. I remember the moment I opened the package and saw this beautiful object that Jo had sent. Something she'd made with her own hands and her own unique imagination. What could an editor treasure more from his author? Only the friendship the gift represents.

Additionally, the gemstone on the cover of his copy is that of a tourmaline, which is his son's birthstone.

Also of note is that after the display of his book at the New York library ends next month, Arthur would like to donate his book to his alma mater, Brown University, and that Scholastic's Barry Cunningham received an original copy as welll and lent it to the National Library of Scotland.

Scholastic is donating three copies of the book to each of 87 branches of the New York Public Library. 

All proceeds from the book benefit the Children's High Level Group.
